Host name not found could be due to the DNS error. You may need to check the DNS settings.

Check if the old kernel works for networking. Try to ping yahoo.com. Do lspci -vvv | less, and check what ethernet adapter chip you have. Google the chip, and see which module that chip uses. Do lsmod, and see if that module is loaded. If the module isn't loaded, try: modprobe <module_name>. Restart networking, /etc/init.d/networking restart, and see if Internet works.

The other thing you can try is, from the kernel source root, /usr/src/linux, is running depmod.

As previously suggested, it could be a DNS issue. Can you ping an IP: 75.126.162.205?
Is your /etc/resolv.conf sane?

Have you done a diff of the old and new kernel config files?

I fixed it. When i was playing with the kernel, i accdentally removed /var/*.sock (* means i forgot the exact name).
I just type touch /var/(whatever the filenam is).sock and its working again.
I am posting this from Ubuntu running in VBox on DSL.
